Risk-based surveillance offers major opportunities for more cost-effective surveillance of animal health hazards. The benefits can be incurred by both publicly funded surveillance as well as by privately run (e.g. industry, NGOs) programmes. Because the potential of risk-based approaches has not yet been fully exploited despite considerable technical progress in the past years, this project aims to promote the further development of risk-based surveillance methods, apply them to selected case studies and provide support for their dissemination and integration in existing surveillance routines. It follows on from the EU FP7 funded project RISKSUR which was led by RVC from 2012 to 2015.

The project is partly funded by ANIHWA and benefits from in-kind contributions of various partners. It is led by SAFOSO AG; consortium partners are the Norwegian Veterinary Institute, Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut, Gezondheidsdienst voor Dieren, Le Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement (CIRAD), The Swedish National Veterinary Institute, Vion Food Group, and the Danish Agriculture & Food Council.
